Ienai SPACE has been developing the propulsion system ATHENA, a micro electrical propulsion rocket based on micro and nano technology that allows nanosatellites to change their orbit, to stay longer in the same orbit or even to avoid possible collisions. The development of the main component of the first ATHENA prototype was in collaboration with Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica del SCIS, in Barcelona. It will be launched January, 2022.
During this #Women4Space conference, the process to develop ATHENA and what is expected from this first mission will be explained by Sara Correyero.
